Neonatal Nurse

Bolton NHS Foundation Trust
£28,407 to £34,581 per annum pro rata
Closing date
16 Jul 2024
The NICU at Bolton NHS Foundation Trust is looking to recruit motivated and passionate band 5 nurses Neonatal experience is desirable though not essential as full training and support would be provided. You will work as a member of the Neonatal Unit delivering quality, evidence-based care to neonates.

You will be responsive to the needs of parents using a family centred approach.

Applications from overseas Nurses

The Trust appreciates and values the contribution international nurses bring to the NHS. We also understand the support overseas nurses need to gain full registration once in the UK (via OSCE) and therefore we only recruit internationally to fill nursing vacancies when we can ensure support is in place. At this present time we aren't in a position to offer that support and therefore will not accept applications from overseas nurses who only have Part 1 NMC registration. If that position changes in future we will clearly advertise our opportunities for international nurses to join our nurse team here in Bolton. Thank you for your understanding.

Main duties of the job

We are a well established level 3 unit providing a high quality service to the local neonatal network and beyond. The unit's current cot configuration is 16 ITU/HDU and 19 SC cots. We have a team of highly dedicated consultants and nurses who work collaboratively to deliver high quality care to our patients and families.

Successful candidates would be supported with individualised local induction and a place on the Neonates North West Programme, dependent on prior experience. Further development would be supported as appropriate.

Successful candidates will be subject to appropriate disclosure by the Disclosure and Barring Service.

We are looking for people who share our four core Trust values, which are: ' Putting the Patient at the Heart of Everything I Do' - delivering care and service as I would expect to receive myself , ' Valued ' - no matter what my role is I will strive to provide a quality service , ' Respected ' - I will treat others as I expect to be treated myself , and ' Proud ' - I will demonstrate a 'can and will do' attitude to my work remaining focussed on solutions rather than problems . If this sounds like you, then we would love to receive your application.
